Does it seem like just yesterday that you were shopping for Christmas presents? If so, it's probably amazing to you that the day has come to shop for the men in your life again. Father's Day for 2015 is on Sunday, June 21st, so you still have time to make it a great event. If your husband is an independent person who feels like he has to carry the load all the time, here are some ideas for you to make this Father's Day one where he will feel pampered.
The Meals For The Day - Haven't you heard that the best way to a man's heart is by filling his tummy? In this case, be sure that he doesn't have to lift a finger!
- Consider having
something elaborateon the breakfast table. A make-your-own burrito with all the fixings for a Mexican breakfast would be a lot of fun. Another idea is to make pancakes and have different choices of toppings for them, along with bacon or sausage and hash brown potatoes. Don't forget not to let him clean up the mess.
- A fun idea for lunch is to pack a picnic basket full of breakfast goodies and kidnap the honored man. Go to a park or even your back yard to enjoy the continuation of a fun day. Another thought is getting together with friends and having the gals do the grilling instead of the guys.
- Even though it may not be very original, a great idea for dinner is to take your husband to his favorite restaurant. If he likes new experiences, consider taking him to a restaurant with exotic foods. Just don't make him pay for the meal!
The Gift - There's certainly nothing wrong with asking for gift suggestions. However, knowing that your husband is a do-it-yourselfer, you probably can't go wrong by heading to his favorite hardware shop to do your shopping.
- Think of sneaking a peak into his tool chest to see if any of his hand tools need replacing. If he has worn some of them out, that probably means he liked that particular brand, so it might be smart to stick with it when making your purchase.
- Has he been eyeing an expensive power tool? Perhaps he'd like a cordless drill, a table saw, an electric nail gun, or even an air compressor. If your wallet won't handle that amount of money, consider asking your children to give a group gift
withyou. Another idea is to give a gift card with the amount you were planning to spend so your husband can put it toward a tool of his choice.
- Don't forget classes. Hardware stores often offer classes where individuals can learn different skills. See if there's a calendar of the classes that are coming up and tuck it in with your gift.
